Called my SIL yesterday and told her that I would like to treat the whole clan for dinner tonite... thot of ordering Domino's since I have few vouchers. Pause...not a good idea..since it's a school holiday and tak pergi maner maner..so my SIL said why not we dine out?? Good idea..but where?? Then both of us teringat "Big Plate"...the last time we went there was??? tak ingat dahh..
We left after Isya, so that balik nanti tak la chaotic nak suruh solat. It was in Melawati so it took us only about 10minutes drive. On the way there..it was a bad comedy evening for me and SIL. Zahin n Muhd..tak abis abis bagi lawak mental..a short dumb one..but ader yg funny..we had to endure the jokes and even answered for it..layan kan je laaa..
I guess the reason I wanted to bring them out for dinner it's because for the past few days..some of the daily must-read blogs are putting up pictures of food...food...and foooooddd....argghhhh....it's sooooo not fair...i can't cook that good yet..:( So to settle my cravings I had to go and outsource it...and the theme was western..everyone agreed..and so does my tummy. Eating alone sucks, since pay day has arrived..why not I treat the clans? Boleh re-bonding ngan kids skalikan? It cost a whoopi over RM200..but that's nothing compared to the satisfaction I saw on the kids faces and my tummy.
Soups were mushroom soup and oxtail soup served in a homemade bread-mangkuk style. Mushroom soup finished within 5 minutes...I got to take a spoonful.. And the Oxtail-soup, this time I make it a point to snap it before it's gone..
Now that's from the Kiddies menu. It's Baby Steak. It dun look like no portions for kiddies... We ordered 5 of those..deliciousss!!
As soon as the Baby Steak arrived, we gave to Habib..because after the minor opt and with medications he's taking..he's forever hungry.. He quickly removed the greens on his plate. Dengan selambanyer...
Ma, amik petai nie, Habib tak makan.
Ader ker french beans cakap petai??? My..my...
Menu - Chicken Shah Alam
Menu - Seafood Fettucine..
Menu - Kebab Chicken with Saffron Rice
Menu - Chicken Picatta ( Took home the left-over and had it for lunch today..slurpp..)
While waiting for me and SIL to finish our dish and whatever are left...Zahin made his light-sabre...that shows to prove there's a child in every man..
We went home dgn perut yg kenyang-sekenyangnyer...and in my head..woww..I'm gonna have Chic Picatta left over for lunch tommorow...yayy!!!
We thot the bad comedy night was over but Habib in his jovial mood popped out a question..
Habib - Binatang aper yg ader nombor??
Me - Entah??
Malas nak layan mood..sbb dah jadie ular sawa..he then gave the answer..
Habib - 1300-85-'tupai-tupai (2525)'...tupai laaa..
Mama and me bust out laughing..kelakar jugak lawak bodoh Habib nie..at that point at least..
Aaahhhhh..what a night..I think the kids needed the break..
p/s: me & SIL teringat arwah's favourite dish - kambing banting...:(
